John of the Cross

If we were to go to Saint John of the Cross with a problem or complaint, perhaps he would remind us that of course "the road is narrow" and those who wish "to travel it more easily must cast off all things" and use the cross as their "cane," and be ready to suffer all things willingly for the love of God.

Because sometimes we may have preferred other crutches or cushions to the cross of Christ, we beg the Lord's mercy.
